Do not be fooled, Pacelli is NOT a good school! Most of its teachers are veeeery below average and hate teaching. The school revolves entirely on who is a "good Cincinnati family" and if you are not a part of a said family, you will be mostly excluded. The school also revolves around sports, and if you do not play a sport, you will also be excluded. It is EXTREMELY cliquey and the students aren't bright at all. If you're thinking about sending your child here, please look at other options.
Our son just graduated from Cardinal Pacelli School, and we have daughters in fourth and sixth grade. We are very pleased with the school, and in fact, our graduating son was admitted to McNicholas, Moeller, and St. Xavier--all with highest honors. The school just finished a beautiful renovation/addition, including a great new science lab. Cardinal Pacelli has caring teachers, active parents, excellent extracurricular activites, and a safe, nurturing learning environment.
Cardinal Pacelli School offers a great learning atmosphere, with newly renovated facilities and a welcoming parish community. The student/teacher ratio is excellent and their students routiniely graduate and continue at the HS of their choice (St. X, Ursula, Moeller, Ursuline, McNick, Summit, and Walnut Hills). My sons, in 1st and 3rd grade, are ahead of the curve academically and are well-mannered, resepctful children, due very much in part to Cardinal Pacelli School.
